A decent sequel to City Slickers, but where the heck was Bruno Kirby?

This didn't need a second movie. Kind of pointless.

The city folk return to the Wild West in City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold. After discovering a treasure map in Curly's hat, Mitch takes his best friend and his brother on a treasure hunt in the Nevada desert. Unfortunately, the writing is especially weak, and lacks the sincerity and cleverness of the original. The acting is also fairly subpar; trying to recapture the chemistry of the first film, but failing miserably. Overly contrived and formulaic, City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold has some entertaining moments but it lacks the free spirit and heart of the original.

It basically retreads the plot of the well made original, and this is the result: A anti-climactic, scarcely funny, lame rehash.

Prototypical 'the first one was a surprise hit so let's cash in and make a sequel' movie.

A sequel made just for the sake of making a sequel to a high grossing film. No where near as good as the first.

The first was a smart movie about mid-life crisis and guys bonding. The characters in this one are looking for money and it the movie was just made...for more money. Plus Jon Lovitz was a bad replacement for the late great Bruno Kirby who was great in the original.

Still the movie does have some charm and heart despite the awful plot. The late great Jack Palance steals the show once again even if it doesn't work that Curly has a twin brother.

We have a sequel to 1991's amazing City Slickers. While this movie is just as enjoyable as the first, it's not necessarily at the same level technically. But we have a treasure hunt that the characters go on, and who can complain about that? The themes are a little more buried, but the story about brotherhood is what this film is really about.

Jon Lovitz is a great addition to the cast as he provides another banana to Billy Crystal's smiling straight-man. And we're always glad they figured out a way to bring back Jack Palance--but this time as Curly's twin brother, Duke.

The film is never predictable, although it borrows some from previous westerns. But that just adds to the partial satire that this movie is.

It may not make you weep a little like the first one, and there isn't as much at stake, but with a fantastic cast, you could be entertained watching them fly a kite.

Twizard Rating: 88

A good sequel with same energy and hilarity, and almost the same warmth with minor predictability. (B+)

Pretty lame and pointless (also stupid) sequel to the Crystal-lead comedy "City Slickers". You get a goofy plot about a lost treasure, Palance returns as his original character's twin, and with Kirby not returning (good for him) and being replaced with Jon just find it hard to enjoy as much as the first one. First flick is okay, skip the awful sequel.

Hell yes!!! I know everyone hates this one, but Jon Lovitz is HILARIOUS! Better cast this time around. Jack Palance rules as the twin brother.

City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold isn't quite as entertaining as the first installment but it still has those interesting characters and offers up some pretty good jokes along the way.

Just as funny as the first, not original enough?? What the hell did you critics want from a western comedy???

Mitch (Billy Crystal) & Phill (Daniel Stern) are back for another adventure in this light hearted comedy sequel. This time Mitch is bringing his brother, Glen (Jon Lovitz). One night, Mitch finds a tresure map in his dead trail bosses, Curly's (Jack Palance) hat. When Mitch discovers that, he gets Phill & Glen to join him out in the dessert to look for the gold. When the three of them get there, they discover that their old trail boss, Curly has a twin brother named Duke. Duke is also out for the treasure but not wanting to share it. Along the way, the four of them run into dangerous senarios where the face challenges against stampeeds & thugs that try to keep them from getting there.

Legend of Cury's Gold is a very funny sequel from the first. It has plenty of laughs for the whole family to enjoy. Everyone on screen are funnier as ever with their sense of humor. I thought the run-time was good for this film. It wasn;t too long nor too short. It was just perfect. Its extremely entertaining as you join the crew looking for the treasure & get excited along the way with nonstop fun throughout. Overall, this sequel stays true to the first with much more going for it. If you want a good laugh with a fun story & characters then look no more. This has enough hysterical moments to leave you satisfied. Legend of Curly's Gold is a exciting adventure that you wont soon forget.

3 1/2 stars
